Robin *Day 4*

I love this next beauty by Robin:

The blue and brown color scheme on this card is so soft and easy on the eyes! In addition to the color scheme, the gingham and lace punch give this card a great country feeling. Finally, isn't it fun the way Robin attached the ribbon with the button off to the side?
Here is my take:

And I have a bonus to share with you today. My sweet 12 year old sister-in-law is in town and we got to spend a little crafty time together last night. So fun! Here is her fabulous take using Robin's card as inspiration:Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments! I am really busy this week with work, so I did not have time to type up my list of materials/supplies for this card. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me. :)

Love that "Robin" card!! Your take on it is wonderful, Jill! The butterfly is fabulous! And your sister-in-law's card? Well, all I can say is that your card making and distressing skills have "rubbed" off on her! (pun intended!)Love her card too! So pretty!!

Three cards instead of two, what a feast! All are so beautiful! The contrast of your butterfly (perfectly colored btw) against this bg is so striking! It must have been great to craft with your SIL!

Robin's card is so soft and pretty and full of great detail! Love your card inspired by her. Wonderful colours and design and I love the glow you achieved with distressing.

Your sister-in-law's card is fantastic - is she really only 12? I love the gorgeous colours she used and her butterflies look amazing! Wonderful card!
